Great floral IPA! Hints of pine and nice citrus. Malt background not as intense as double IPAS consumed earlier this outing, lighter in color w/very fragrant hops. Will drink again!

3.75/5  rDev -7.2%

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber color capped by several inches of foam; nice retention and some streaks of lace appear

Smell: Kumquat, mango and lemon/lime

Taste: A touch of biscuity malt and the hops take over, bringing the unusual tones detected in the aroma; the bitterness builds, after the swallow, with the lemon/lime and pith flavors dominant

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This beer disappeared in the back of my fridge for several months so I am drinking it six months after the bottling date and that likely had an impact on the flavor profile; still, a decent IPA that I would like to try when fresher

Thanks, mabermud, for the opportunity
